Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge

Accommodation in Tsavo West

Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is a tranquil, hushed and cool refuge framed by Mount Kilimanjaro and the rolling, volcanic landscapes of the deep green Chyulu Hills, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge in Tsavo West National Park immerses you in stunning beauty and exhilarating adventures while surrounding you with every modern comfort. Arriving guests are enchanted by the classic stone design and views of elephants, buffalo, and other plains game drinking and cooling off in our water hole.

One of the earliest national park lodges in Kenya, this Tsavo West hotel includes 56 guest rooms including five suites that feature remarkably large living areas, ranging from our Standard Rooms to Deluxe Suites and the resplendent Kilaguni Suite. Greet the morning with a bush breakfast or sip traditional sundowner cocktails at Lion Rock. Relax on the garden sundeck by the swimming pool. Savor seasonal, locally sourced cuisine in the dining room overlooking the water hole.

Unwind in a day bed at the stone-built bar, sipping a perfectly mixed drink while taking in marvelous views of the Chyulu Hills. Allow us to arrange for unforgettable safari experiences such as a private game drive into Tsavo West National Park with a dedicated guide, a soothing aromatic massage or an outing to see the hippos and aquatic life of Mzima Springs. Surrender to the wild, ancient allure of Tsavo West, the land of lions and lava, at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge.
